  • This was a diamond in the rough! The museum taught us a lot about Barcelona which helped us understand a lot about what we were looking at when we saw the other museums. Highly recommend coing here first then the rest of the city.
  • A very interesting visit for anyone interested in the history of Barcelona or archeology. Buried under modern-day Barcelona is the original Roman city of Barcino. The remains date back to the 1st century BC. A series of elevated walkways allow you to walk around and over the ruins, learning about the history and function of the facilities. It seemed parts were closed for COVID, and we weren't always very clear of the recommended path to take through the museum.
